Traveling after Hurricanes Harvey and Irma? Here are some key tips


Hurricanes Irma and Harvey have brought billions of dollars in damage to the American South and Caribbean, but the storm season isn’t over yet.

“We need to keep our eye on the National Hurricane Center because the season isn’t over yet and the fact that we had two category fours in one season hit the mainland is historic,” said Cindy Antrican, public affairs manager for AAA Allied Group, the Miami Valley’s branch of the national organization.

Antrican said those traveling to areas impacted by Irma or Harvey should check ahead with their travel agents.

“If you are planning to travel in the near future, in the next week, I would advise that you check with your travel agent, because there is damage,” Antrican said. “We are also seeing the backup from the flights that were cancelled or delayed, so I think the best bet is to check with your airline and travel agent.”

As of 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, nearly all flights at Dayton International Airport were on time.

Three Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport arrivals were canceled — an 11:30 a.m. American Airlines flight from Charlotte, an 11 p.m. American Airlines flight from Miami, and a 1 p.m. Frontier Airlines flight from Orlando.

A 6 a.m. Wednesday flight by American Airlines to Miami is also cancelled.

Check with your airline for the latest information.
